Light Wizard is an adventurer of the imagination, part of a cutting-edge generation of visionaries redefining the framework of possibility. He is a consciousness explorer dedicated to unraveling metaphysical mysteries and spiritual enigmas. Using artwork as a sacred practice; and light as his medium, he channels artwork into existence using a very particular process and peculiar visual language.
The artwork is a fusion of sculpture and photography. Steven collects hard rubbish, recycled material, and found objects that are assembled into sculpture. These sculptures are reworked and captured in a single photograph without any digital manipulation or alteration.
His process is highly defined and is designed to align with spirit; allowing a familiar yet alien voice to speak through him. His unique style teases his viewer’s imagination as he blurs the line between reality, and fantasy. The end product reveals a highly structured, balanced, wonder-filled world, oozing with intent, and perplexing puzzlement. He captures curiosities; marveling his audience with a peak into a wondrous world of fantastical ingenuity that pushes all boundaries of possibility.
Steven was born in Wellington, New Zealand in 1981. He has had an international life having lived in New Zealand, Mexico, Venezuela, Japan, Guatemala, U.S.A, and Australia. He studied Fine Art Photography in San Francisco at The Academy of Art University before moving to Australia where he currently resides.

Undulata Tribal and The Lasya Collective
Undulata Tribal and The Lasya Collective have joined forces to create a spectacle of tribal fusion bellydance, costumes, and fire. Under the artistic leadership of tribalistas and Dragon Dreaming veterans, Pip, Sara and Sacha, this collaboration is also proud to be nurturing the next generation of doofer-bellydancers. The Dragon Dreaming festival falls at the time of Beltane in the southern hemisphere - the pagan celebration of spring. It was a time when the veil between the realms was thinnest, and fairy folk and nature spirits would cross into our world to create magic and mischief. In homage to this magical time, we have created a dramatic work of tribal belly dance especially for Dragon Dreaming. After honouring the earth, heavens, and our community, we will take you on a journey into self, guided by the triple goddess - the maiden, mother and crone. Healing our past through the medium of dance, we are able to integrate all aspects of self into a harmonious whole, ending with an invitation to the audience to celebrate themselves and their community, and get involved in the spirit of this beautiful festival.
SpynFerno will captivate and entice audiences from every genre. Performing with Fire and LED: Staff, Poi, Rope Dart, Clubs, Hoop and Fans.
